The following is a handmade list of genealogy resources found at the Perry Carnegie Library, revised April 2007. This is not an exhaustive list of materials at the library; a number of folders of genealogical and historical subjects are not kept on the open library shelves, but available by request.

The library staff is very congenial and helpful in guest orientation to genealogical and historical resources within the library.  The library has a number of computers with links to the Internet - free to the public.   One can sign in as guest if not a library cardholder; waits for computer availability possible.
